The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that 526,800 new nursing jobs will need to be filled between 2012 – 2022. Many new nurses will need to be educated to fulfill that need, and as nurses continue to grow in number and importance to the medical field, the need for skilled nurse educators also goes up.
Entering the field of nursing is also challenging. Increasing competition for the most desirable jobs for practicing nurses and nurse educators can be intimidating. It is important for young nurses, especially students, to have role models that remind them how valuable and rewarding a nursing career can be. This list, presented in no particular order, is not intended as a ranking of these individuals. It is simply meant to honor 100 dedicated nurse educators who have succeeded in carving out a place for themselves in the changing nursing landscape.
